Value of a 1945

August 11, 2011
Question by: Ton, Glane, Netherlands

Q:

Can you give an indication of the value of this Kopke 1945 port (I have only one bottle).

A:

We are not ourselves active in the secondary market for old Ports, so cannot advise you re saleability or value of any wine, least of all a wine made by one of our competitors. If you consult our Knowledge Base you will see from the Viticultural Report for 1945 that the year is generally very highly regarded.  In the Netherlands we suggest you contact the wine merchant Wijnkoperij Luuc van Boort http://www.vanboort.nl/ or Christies or Sothebys, both of whom have fine wine departments and offices in Amsterdam; any of these could advise you if you wish to sell. Bear in mind any potential buyer will want to know more about the provenance of the wine, so any records you have about when and where it was purchased, and most importantly, some record of how it has been stored, will be critical.  Alternatively, if you decide to enjoy the wine yourself, take a look at our series of articles about Enjoying Port (see menu bar above) particularly our suggestions in this article about decanting very old Ports.
